The concept of autocollimation as an optical instrument was conceived about a century ago for accurate, non-contact measurements of angles. Since it was invented, it has developed a long history of being used in alignment of angles and optical elements. Recent novel photonics development has created a need for alignment and measurement of optics and lasers – the new hybrid technology does exactly that.
